Girls golf sends five to bi-district

South Whidbey girls golf is sending five players to the class 1A bi-district championship after battling through a cold, wet and windy day at the District 1 Championship held at Snohomish Golf Course on Thursday.

Falcon junior Kolby Heggenes, the state runner-up in 2016, finished first with an 83. Senior Emily Turpin was sixth with a 96, while senior Riley Yale placed 10th with a 99. Alyssa Ludtke and Chloe Johnson also qualified for the tournament.

The bi-district championship, a state qualifying tournament, is on May 16 at Jackson Park Golf Course in Seattle. South Whidbey was the state runner-up in 2016.

The Falcons, who won the Cascade Conference title for the second consecutive year, also won the Cascade Conference Medalist tournament on May 9 at Snohomish Golf Course.
